What Do I Need to Know Before Remodeling?

Before starting your remodel, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of your goals, budget, and timeline. Deciding what adds the most value to your renovation for you can guide your decisions. Engaging with a design-build firm like Oxland Builders ensures a seamless process from concept to completion, with a single point of contact and a team of experts guiding you at every step.

What is the Typical Design-Build Process with Oxland Builders?

Next, we execute your construction with precision, adhering to the agreed timeline and budget.

What Questions Should You Ask a Remodeling Contractor?

Key questions include asking about their experience with projects similar to yours, their process, timeline, and pricing structure. Inquire about insurance and contractor referrals. With Oxland Builders, you're assured of hiring a contractor with a wealth of experience in residential remodeling in Seacoast, New Hampshire. 


For kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects, inquire about durable materials suited to these environments, design trends, and how to maximize functionality within your space. Ask about the potential for custom features and how to integrate smart home technology for modern conveniences.

What Documents Should I Ask for When Hiring a Contractor?

It's important to ask for proof of insurance and any relevant certifications. A detailed contract outlining the scope of work, timeline, and payment schedule is also crucial. At Oxland Builders, we ensure all documentation is provided for full transparency.

What Adds the Most Value to a Renovation?

Kitchens and bathrooms often provide the best return on investment. Updating these spaces with modern, high-quality fixtures and finishes can significantly increase your home’s value. Incorporating energy-efficient solutions and optimizing living space also add substantial value.

What is the Cost of a Remodel with Oxland Builders?

The cost of a remodel with Oxland Builders varies significantly based on the project's scope, chosen materials, and any structural modifications required. We ensure transparent pricing, providing detailed estimates tailored to your specific needs. Factors influencing cost include the extent of renovations, luxury finishes, and updates to meet current building codes.


We aim to find the right balance between quality and cost, focusing on enhancements that offer the most value and improve your home's appeal and functionality.

What is the Timeline of a Remodel with Oxland Builders?

The timeline for a remodel with Oxland Builders depends on the project's complexity and scale. From an initial consultation through to the design and construction phases, timelines can range from a few weeks for minor updates to several months for more extensive renovations.


We prioritize efficient project management, clear communication, and meticulous planning to ensure the remodel progresses smoothly, aiming to minimize disruption and deliver a high-quality finish within a realistic timeframe.

How Dusty Will It Get During the Remodel?

During any remodel, some level of dust is inevitable, especially during the demolition and construction phases. At Oxland Builders, we understand the importance of maintaining a clean environment and take measures to minimize dust and debris. This includes using dust barriers, air filtration systems, and regular cleanups.


We strive to keep your home as clean and livable as possible throughout the remodeling process.

Do We Need to Move Out During the Remodel?

The decision to stay in your home during a remodel depends on the project's scope and your comfort level with the ongoing work. For smaller projects, many homeowners find it manageable to stay put, while larger-scale remodels might necessitate temporarily relocating to ensure your family's comfort and safety.


We'll discuss the project's impact with you in advance, so you can make the best decision for your situation.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Brad comes up with really great ideas for what will look good on a project. I call Brad because he does what he says he's going to do. I trust him. I don't even think about calling anyone else.


| Hampstead, NH

What makes Brad a great builder is all the work he does before picking up a hammer. He thinks through the details, the potential obstacles, and the opportunities to make the project better.


| Newmarket, NH

Oxland is one of a kind; great builders and great guys. Brad came over to give a quote for a tile inlay in our front stairs; we liked him so much we hired Oxland to do a complete third floor rebuild. On schedule and on budget, Oxland transformed our home.
